Kaddu (Pumpkin) ki Subzi & Makke ki Roti | Traditional Recipe | Winter Special – Recipe No. 62

As winters has come it’s time to treat ourselves with yummy Makke ki Roti. Makke ki Roti is very popular in Punjab and Rajasthan. Makke ki roti is maize flour flatbread cooked until golden brown. Mainly it is served with Sarson ka Saag. But at my home we serve it with Palak ki Subzi, Tadka Dal, Kaddu ki Sabzi or Mogri ki Kadi. It is very delicious and easy recipe. Today I will be serving it with Kaddu ki Sabzi and Jaggery. Jaggery is also an important ingredient to be served with Makke ki Roti.

Kaddu ki Sabzi is a very simple recipe where pumpkin pieces are cooked in variety of masalas. I have made it little sweet by adding sugar. You can avoid it if you don’t want to make it sweet.
